antiTHESIS is a refereed arts and humanities journal edited by graduate students and published annually in associated with the School of Culture and Communication at the University of Melbourne. Now in its twenty-third year, antiTHESIS is the oldest graduate student-oriented journal in Australia. Since 2004 its publication has been preceded by an annual interdisciplinary symposium held at the University of Melbourne.
We publish a mixture of scholarly essays, poetry, short fiction, creative non-fiction, as well as artwork, illustration, photography, reviews and interviews. Whilst antiTHESIS is run by graduate students for graduate students, we have a long tradition of publishing works by established scholars, writers and artists from around the world. Along with many others, we’ve published works by Joanna Bourke, Christos Tsiolkas, Terry Eagleton, Gore Vidal, Stephen Fry, Delia Falconer, Chris Wallace-Crabbe, Ghassan Hage, and Slavoj Zizek.
The editorial committee members for Volume 23: Live, are Christopher Edwards, Scott Wark, Andrea Von, Toby Miller, Shivaun Plozza, Whitney Ochoa, Joshua Arandt, Laura Woollett and Daniela Cortes del Castillo.
antiTHESIS is supported by an advisory board, which includes Peter Beilharz (La Trobe University), Rex Butler (University of Queensland), Simon During (Johns Hopkins University), Annamarie Jagose (University of Auckland), Julian Murphet (University of New South Wales), Manfred B. Steger (RMIT University), Christina Thompson (Harvard University), Angus Trimble (Yale University), and Clara Tuite, Stephanie Trigg and Ken Gelder (University of Melbourne).
